Stamp in the wrong place

Here’s a card I found on eBay. It’s a Derrick Thomas 1992 Profiles card that was stamped in the wrong place.

It’s difficult to tell from the front of the card, but look at the back. The stamp is in the top right corner, instead of the bottom.

Does anybody specifically collect oddball cards like this one? Would you call this an “error card”? Would anybody specifically avoid a card like this when putting together the whole set?

Here’s the other side of the same card.

And here’s a Bernie Kosar Profiles card I came across.


Does anybody collect the Punt, Pass & Kick set?

Just tossing this out there: Does anybody collect the 1991 Pro Line Punt Pass & Kick stamped set.

I think it’s neat, because one of the things that attracted me to the Pro Line certified autographs in the first place was the embossed seal. And here’s a small batch of cards that has its own unique embossed seal, the NFL PPK logo. What’s different from the regular seal or the seals from the National conventions is that the seal is smaller, and it’s not placed on the lower right corner edge. It’s placed up and in, so the entire seal is visible.

And on the Warren Moon card, the placement can be a little awkward.

The complete 12-card set consisted of many of the best quarterbacks of the day: Moon, Dan Marino, Bernie Kosar, Jim Kelly, Jim Everett, Boomer Esiason, John Elway, Randall Cunningham, Troy Aikman and Phil Simms.

Also Bubby Brister.

And the 12th card in the set featured a photo of all 11 of those quarterbacks.
